Student Internships

Thank you for expressing interest in Congresswoman Anna Eshoo’s internship program. Congresswoman Eshoo is dedicated to heightening the political awareness of young people and including them in the work of her office.

Internships in both the Washington, D.C. and the District Office in Palo Alto, California are offered to students currently enrolled in and having completed coursework at a college or university. If you are a high school student, or under 18, we encourage you to apply to Congresswoman’s Student Advisory Board which is launched every fall. Although we cannot offer paid internships, we will be glad to give academic credit. Candidates who reside in the 18th Congressional District are strongly encouraged to apply.

Interns will assist staff with administrative duties (e.g. phones, copying, faxing, etc.) as well as performing substantive work (e.g. legislative research and analysis, drafting responses to constituent inquiries, and assisting staff in a variety of projects and activities). The enthusiasm, abilities, and availability of the intern will usually determine the extent of their involvement.

While our office is attentive and flexible to work with both quarter and semester school systems, interested applicants should plan for a minimum of 10 to 15 hours of availability throughout the work week.

Once your application is completed, you are welcome to enclose your resume or a letter of recommendation as an optional part of your application.

The deadlines for each internship session are as follows:

Summer—April 14th
Fall—August 14th
Spring—December 2nd

Please keep in mind that summer is a popular time for internships, and there is a limit to the number of interns that may work in the office at any given time.

If you have any questions about the internship program or the application process, please feel free to contact the intern coordinator in the District Office at 650-323-2984 or in the Washington, D.C. Office at 202-225-8104 or email
